co location

I have an existing lease for a tower and ground space with a carrier. Now another carrier plans to co locate on the tower (I don't get any revenue for the co location on the tower per the lease from the original carrier) but I can and must provide ground space for the new carrier and get a rental lease. Can I request a rent equal to or greater than the rent charged the first carrier for their tower/ground space?

Ground lease
by: Stephen

In a situation like this the carrier is going to pay the tower company about $2,000 per month to hang its antennas on the tower. What you can get out of the ground lease depends on a number of things, like the availability of other locations and the zoning requirements, the amount of rent you are getting, the location of the tower and the tenant.

There are usually a dozen items in a typical ground lease that need to be adjusted to make it fair for the landlord, so I hope that you give us a call to discuss.
